I've worked on this piece for about 10-15 hours on and off in December and I thinkk I like the results. the bird is supposed to be flying out of the girl's hand.
Mouse, GIMP, 70+ layers.

A great piece of work by you, everything about the image is to adore.

I'll begin with the background first as it is one of the most significant part of an image. The cloudy background adds a charismatic effect to the image and makes it more appealing to the eye. However, a few strands of the pale teal lines look too irregular and rough. Other than that, the background is a perfect match for the character.

The character [The girl] itself has been drawn to near perfection is looking very good. The Sky blue hair with that flabbergasted smile looks astounding with the color scheme and the outfit. The only thing I found somewhat disturbing was the fact that the hand coming forth was too big. It could have been drawn to more perfection, but overall a good job.

The bird, has a decent posture and the happy and innocent look is to adore, especially with those azure eyes and the golden look gives it that majestic feeling.

Overall a job well done, and I hope to see more of such works in the future.

The Artist thought this was FAIR
7 out of 8 deviants thought this was fair.

The technique of coloring everything was very good; the skin looks really good and the shading is so even. However, her legs seem too small and really awkward. There is no shading on her legs under the skirt but the light seems to be coming from above.
The pose idea is okay, but her shoulders are too level. Her face looks kind of weird. Her whole body could be tilted towards the viewer more, because her hand is reaching as far as it can go but her body seems to stay upright.
Overall, with the girl, I think you should really make sure you have a great pose first, and maybe even make a complete lineart before putting in all the work of coloring and shading. I like her outfit but the skirt seems weird... I don't think the train worked, and it needs to be the same length all around. Her hair and a lot of her clothing has no movement at all while her necklace is in the air.
The bird and clouds look really weird -- I think it would have been better to use a reference for the bird, and a lot of deviantarters have tutorials on how to draw realistic clouds.

Overall, it's very good and I can tell you've worked very hard on it, but try to spend more time really getting the pose perfect before putting so much work into the shading, etc.
